Governor Urges Caution at Coast as Arthur Approaches North Carolina

Governor Urges Caution at Coast as Arthur Approaches North Carolina”

Tropical Storm Arthur brought heavy rain to North Carolina's coast on Monday as forecasters warned that the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season could also spread life-threatening surf and rip currents along U.S. East coast beaches in the days ahead.

"Everyone in our coastal areas should remain aware and cautious as Arthur brushes our coast on Monday", said Governor Cooper.

The center of the storm is expected to move near the coast for the next few hours, and bring up to 3 inches of rain and tropical storm force winds to coastal areas. Expect stronger winds near the coast (15-25G40) and the strongest winds on the southern Outer Banks (35-45G60).

Tropical Storm Arthur is getting closer to the North Carolina coast.

Those waves can generate deadly rip currents.

The strongest winds will arrive early Monday and persist through Monday afternoon before diminishing later in the day. It will be windy today with most areas seeing NE winds at 10 to 20 with gusts to 30 miles per hour. Sustained winds of 40-50 miles an hour are possible across the Outer Banks, with gusts of 50-65 miles an hour possible. This clearing will allow us to get into the low 60s inland. Scattered power outages are possible. "The track and details of the system are subject to change at this stage so stay tuned for updates".

"This early season storm reminds us that we always need to be prepared for severe weather", said North Carolina Emergency Management Director Mike Sprayberry. Most storms occur during the June 1 through November 30 Hurricane Season.
